Daggers in Assassin’s Creed Mirage (AC Mirage) are weapons that have perks that you can use to your advantage during combat. Read on for a list of all daggers, their perks, as well as how to get them.
List of all Dagger
These are all of the daggers that you can find in Assassin’s Creed Mirage.
Initiate of Alamut Dagger
Location: Basim’s default dagger, given to him near the start of the game.
Perk: Aggressive Defense – Parries deal +25 Defense damage
Usefulness: This perk lets you deal some serious additional damage to an opponent’s stamina bar, but the game’s most troublesome enemies make use of attacks that can’t be parried to begin with. Still, against spearmen in particular, having the extra defense damage can be useful.
Hidden One Dagger
Location: Water Mill, in the Northern Wilderness.
Perk: Spread – Melee kills of Poisoned enemies create a poison cloud that damages nearby enemies
Usefulness: Naturally, the Hidden One Dagger pairs well with the Hidden One Sword, letting you spread poison damage across the battlefield. The damage that the cloud deals isn’t actually that impressive but it does add up in longer fights.
Location: Complete the contract ‘The Satiric Poet’.
Perk: Point Blank – Hitting enemies with Throwing Knives from close range deals +10% damage
Usefulness: Throwing knives are an amazing tool when you want to be stealthy, but you usually won’t want to use them when enemies are rushing at you since aiming can feel so sluggish. As such, this perk just doesn’t seem worth it. The 10% damage increase isn’t going to make a noticeable difference, and head shotting unarmoured foes is almost always an instant kill to begin with. There are simply better dagger perks elsewhere.
Zanj Uprising Dagger
Location: The Great Bimaristan in Haylanah, Abbasiyah — in a room on the roof, behind a barred door. Break the lock from the other side with a throwing knife. You can get the angle by perching on the fence that looks into the room through the window.
Perk: Second Wind – Successful Dodges refill 10% of Stamina
Usefulness: Dodging is your most reliable form of defence in this game, and this perk keeps your stamina in check. As long as you’re timing your dodges correctly, and not simply spamming them, you’ll notice a welcome increase in how much stamina you’ve got to work with. A great perk that’s almost always useful
Abbasid Knight Dagger
Location: Qasr Salih in Sharqiyah, Karkh — in the highest room of the main building. Take a nearby oil jar and climb the various boxes and shelves around the corner to reach the roof. Throw the jar at the rubble flooring and drop down the newly created hole to find the chest.
Perk: Resilient – When Basim’s Health is lower than 50%, Damage Resistance is increased by 30%
Usefulness: You’d think a 30% reduction to all incoming damage sounds good, but the reality is that when Basim’s health is below half, you’re only ever two or three attacks from death anyway. The reduction doesn’t actually mean much when your health pool is limited from the start — although there may be times when this perk does prevent a stronger blow from killing Basim outright.
Location: Inside the chamber from ‘The Calling’ quest, which is accessed by diving into the northern oasis and following the tunnel. You’ll need to be in possession of two shards to unlock the weapon. These shards can be taken from the bodies of specific NPCs.
Perk: Life Steal – Every fifth Hit heals Basim for 10% of his health
Usefulness: A 10% heal may not seem like much, but if you’re fighting effectively during a longer battle, you can keep your health topped up rather nicely with this perk. It can definitely help you cut down on drinking elixirs.
